Blood and Sand, offering craft cocktails and 'retold' Buffalo classics menu, to replace Laughlin's

By Andrew Z. Galarneau

Blood & Sand LLC has applied for a liquor, wine and beer license for a restaurant at 333 Franklin St. That's Laughlin's, but signs are it won't be for long.

Joshua Miles, the Rochester restaurateur who runs The Revelry with his wife Jenna, said earlier this month that Blood and Sand would have 20-30 bar seats and 50 dining seats.

“We are a cocktail bar with a focus on ways of the past, blended with the new,” he said. The dining menu is going to be “retold classics,” he said, “some of the things we’ve come to love in Western New York as retold by our chef.”

Jon Karel will be one of the owners and run the drinks operation, he said. Karel, a progenitor of Buffalo’s craft cocktail movement at Vera Pizzeria, left last year to be The Revelry’s bar manager.

Miles could not be reached for comment.
